Abstract
We have measured the resistance of some Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8 superconducting singl e crystals along ab plane and the c axis. For some of the single crystals, a resistivity anomaly near the superconducting transition temperature is ob served in the ab plane. This giant resistance peak is independent of the sm all driving current (I less than or equal to 40 mA), and the peak is suppre ssed and vanished gradually with the increasing applied magnetic field (> 1 00 G). We proposed that the resistance peak is a quasi-reentrant behavior d ue to the superconducting phase inhomogeneous distribution.
